Even in the darkest hour when clothes are full of spit up, a shower seems like a dream, coffee is only on the grocery list, emotions run high, and diapers overflow… what a gift it is to be a mom. This may not enter the mind while in that dark hour, but after the fact, when we have time to reflect while sweet babies sleep and a warm cup of coffee sits in our hands- IT IS ALL WORTH IT!
I don’t wear many nice clothes lately – so, should I really care that I’ve been spit up on? A shower – definitely overrated. Coffee… hmm well, I’m beginning to think that the smell of a stinky diaper is somehow laced with caffeine. Yep, that smell will wake up the entire neighborhood… A gift – I am giving my babies what they are giving me. A reciprocal relationship of love, laughter and the innate need for each other. I understand that not every new mom feels this way, but I believe it is something deep within us. Some of us find it much sooner than others.
